Now, let us get to the features.
Acceleration & Speed
The first benefit you get from the Salesforce Experience Builder is speed.
It expedited the process of building a powerful website that’s equally unique & functional for your brand.
According to data, a single webpage on your website has around sixty available Lightning components that you can include in your website. Add the power of these components together, and you get a website that has the functionality of a complex coded website.
From content management to automation and from messaging to gamification, you get all of it in one place, with the help of a few drag and drop functions. Adding on to the list, functions like sales, customer support, feeds & files can be accessed from one single place.
The result is a faster website development process for the developers, management, and site builders.
This is where the Experience Builder wins big time. The interface of the entire platform is very easy to use and self-explanatory.
While it might take time for you to get used to its each and every functionality, you certainly wouldn’t get lost. The well-designed series of tabs, controls, and tools help any developer or administrator sail through the platform with ease.
The drag and drop function of the platform ensures that all the changes that are made to a website are transparent & clearly visible to the admin.
As you get impressed by how easy to use these tools are, you forget how amazingly powerful they tend to be.
The ease of use makes these tools easily accessible, However, it’s the way they are designed & developed which makes the Experience Builder stand out from the crowd.
The themes page of the Builder, allows you to experiment and incorporate changes in a jiffy. Adding to the good news is the fact that it supports custom-built tools as well. Develop themes that speak a lot about how people identify with your brand.
The Salesforce Experience Builder has gone through a series of changes in its last five years.
In the last five years, the platform has added around 1,000 features, updates, and enhancements. These newer features have mostly been on time, keeping you adept with how the industry you are in, is moving further.

The Experience Builder is present on the Salesforce platform. This makes it much more accessible to the Salesforce AppExchange feature.
Access to AppExchange allows you to access third-party apps and include them in your community, allowing you to bring along the power of third-party apps and platforms.
The no-code movement is right here.
